Hi everyone my name is Emerald and when Sverve contacted me about being featured on their blog I could not stop smiling from ear to ear. You see my blog is rather small and I’m not used to big companies like Sverve knowing who I am or even wanting to feature me on their site. I am beyond grateful and will remember this for years to come. Sverve sent over a few questions for me to answer so let’s get right to it!

How,when &/or why did you being blogging?

I began blogging in 2011 originally on a blog by the name of Dreammua. At that time in my life I was 21 and wanted to be a makeup artist so I created a blog about my journey to reaching my dreams of breaking into the makeup industry. Eventually that dream died out and the blog no longer entertained me so in late 2011 I created Sweet Tart Beauty a blog focused on sharing both the good and bad of the fashion and beauty industry. Since 2011 the blog has grown and now takes on more of a lifestyle niche, covering things like entertainment, food, fashion and beauty.

What are you preferred blogging topics?

I prefer to write about things that come natural to me. With that said I will write conversational pieces on self-esteem, having a disability and quirky articles about life. Outside of my core topics I enjoy interviewing local musicians and public figures for my entertainment section and I love talking about food, fashion and beauty.

What are your three favorite blog posts or 3 blog posts are you most proud of and why?

My three favorite blog post would have to be the post I wrote about The Trumping Mindset in the disabled world. My interview with Danielle Sheypuk and my article on the Blue Heron River Boat tours in Deland Florida. All of these post I feel really showcase my writing ability and push me to create more engaging articles.

What are you up to when not blogging?

Unlike most bloggers my outside life is rather boring. I spend my time at home testing new products, watching Netflix or catching up on the latest episode of Downton Abbey.

What are your tips for balancing family life and blogging?

Know when to say no. I have a problem with this and because of that I often find myself stressed out and unintentionally lashing out at my family members. Treat your blog like a 9-5 job and have a cutoff point where you walk away from the computer and just focus on your family.

Why and how do you use Sverve?

I use Sverve because I enjoy working with brands to create articles we can both love and enjoy for years to come. I also enjoy the community on Sverve. Through this platform I have met some amazing bloggers that have helped me out when I have been bitten by writers block.

Do you have any tips for your success on Sverve?

Stay in communication with the brands you have the opportunity to work with. Write engaging pitches and reach out so that you can build a community.

What do you love most about blogging?

I love the opportunity to share my thoughts with the world. We live in a society where you no longer have to be a celebrity to engage with a multitude of people. That’s something that I enjoy and hope to one day make writing my career of choice.
